WHat kind of flies fit

What fly patterns will fit?

 

A lot of fly fishers have their favorite pattern - they believe in it and normally they are successful...  So, apart from your favorite selection, we recommend that you consider the following; Bonefish and Permit love all kind of Crab and Shrimp imitations.

 

Bonefish Fish can be in different depths between 6inch/15 to 20cm and 6feet / 2 meter, so make sure that the weight of your flies varies too. 

Permit flies should be weighted - we recommend to have 80% with lead eyes and 20% bead chain eyes

 

Tarpons here like to go for Black Deaths and different colors of Enrico Puglisi's Peanut Butter Flies. We often fish with a sinking line so the weight of the fly is not that important here.
